Fires in Apartments / Hotels Lawsuit Claims Lawyer

Few circumstances are more frightening or devastating than a building fire. When it is where you live either temporarily or permanently, you can face serious injuries and significant property damage. Fires in apartment buildings or hotels can displace your family, or worse, take a family member’s life. If the fire was caused by negligence, you may be eligible to seek compensation for injuries, damages and losses caused by the fire.

Landlords at apartment buildings have a duty to provide a safe environment in return for tenants paying rent. This includes minimizing fire risks and having safety measures in place in case of a fire. Adequate access to fire extinguishers, open stairwells, safe electrical wiring and maintained appliances are all expected. Working sprinklers and smoke detectors can help minimize the spread of a fire, reducing risks. When an apartment building owner is negligent in preventing or stopping the spread of fires, they may be liable for injuries, death, property loss and damages caused by a fire in their building.

Hotel Fire Injuries

While most people staying in a hotel will not lose much property in a fire, they are at risk for injury. Any building fire can put those inside at risk. Burns, falls, crushing injuries, smoke inhalation and death are all risks during a hotel fire. If the hotel owner and management were negligent, contributing to the start or spread of the fire, they may be liable for injuries to their guests. A premises liability claim may be made by those injured in a hotel fire to cover medical costs, lost income, pain, suffering and other damages caused by the fire.

Ligori & Ligori is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Ligori.

Michael J.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I had an amazing experience with Ligori & Ligori law firm. They handled my case with such professionalism. From the very beginning by sending someone to my home to get details and interview me after my accident, to my case manager Rochelle who was always a call away and explained every step and made sure there was always transparency and kept me updated with everything. I can be very tough and I called way too many times with millions of questions and my calls were never unanswered and my questions and concerns were always answered. Thanks to their amazing team, from the receptionist to John Castro the lawyer on my case who was always personal and relatable. Highly recommended!
